Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Okay, so I had never watched one episode of the television series "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" before. The show premiered in 1997, and I was pretty much a newlywed with two kids. Just didn't take the time to get into it and felt like I had missed to much once it had run a few years (and I added another kid to the brood). I always meant to watch, since I heard good things about it, but kept putting it off.

Until yesterday, that is. Hulu has the first season available for free, but only until Sept. 30th. Then they will be airing season two. I took that as incentive to dive in and give it a try.

And I like what I have seen so far. Granted, I am only one episode in, and that episode is to be continued, but I like the dialogue between Buffy and her new friends, and even with her and the baddies she has encountered thus far. Seems like it will be a fun show to discover.

Here is the first episode of the series, "Welcome to the Hellmouth".

I am going to go check out part two!


  1. It's Whedon's best, and I'm no fan of Whedon.

    My favorite character, believe it or not, was Buffy's mother. I shall refrain from saying more on the matter.

  2. Whedon's characters will always be my favorites. Buffy is well worth investing some time to watch. There are 7 seasons of the TV series as well as spinoffs and continuations in comic book form.

  3. i did like the character that eventually made his way to Bones...hulu is the bomb...

  4. Most hardcore fans of Buffy think I'm a moron because my favorite season is the first season. I was so geared up for it when it premiered and it really was as awesome and funny/shlocky as I had hoped. I was crazy about SMG and it premiered around my bday when I was still in high school so it really left a great impression with me and I looked forward to watching it. As things got a little more complicated in the show I started to drop off but I managed to catch most of the later shows in reruns. Glad you are getting the chance to watch them!

  5. I loved the movie so I gave the TV show a try. I wanted to like it but I just could not get into it.

  6. It's addictive you know. I'm an Angel fan myself

  7. I missed it when it originally aired also. I am part way through season two....I kinda like it. But it will have to wait until after October :)

    Hope you enjoy!


  8. I was with you before Joe, I have never seen more than the 2s that would come on while channel surfing. The wife is working on that, I assure you, but theres.. Just.. So.. Many.. Seasons..
